Definitions

2. ‘processing’ means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction;

3. ‘controller’ means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law;

4. ‘processor’ means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller;

5. ‘recipient’ means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing;

6. ‘consent’ of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her;

7. ‘personal data breach’ means a breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed.

Principles relating to processing of personal data

Personal data shall be:

  • a) processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the data subject (‘lawfulness, fairness and transparency’);
  • b) collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes; further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes shall, in accordance with Article 89(1), not be considered to be incompatible with the initial purposes (‘purpose limitation’);
  • c) adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed (‘data minimisation’);
  • d) accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that personal data that are inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay (‘accuracy’);
  • e) kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed; personal data may be stored for longer periods insofar as the personal data will be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) subject to implementation of the appropriate technical and organisational measures required by this Regulation in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of the data subject (‘storage limitation’);
  • f) processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures (‘integrity and confidentiality’).

The controller shall be responsible for the above and be able to demonstrate compliance with the above (‘accountability’).

1.  The controller uses the ‘Google Ads (Adwords)’ online advertising program, including Google’s conversion tracking service. Google conversion tracking is an analysis service offered by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; ‘Google’).
2.  When the User reaches a website through a Google advertisement, a cookie required for conversion tracking is saved on his or her computer. These cookies have limited validity and they do not contain any personal data, and therefore cannot be used for the User’s identification.
3.  If the User visits certain pages on the website and the cookie has not yet expired, both Google and the controller can detect that the User has clicked on the advertisement.
4. Each Google Ads (Adwords) customer receives a different cookie, and so the cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Ads (Adwords) customers.
5. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Ads (Adwords) customers. This way customers receive information on the number of users that clicked on their advertisement and were directed to the page marked with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.
6. If you want to opt out of conversion tracking, you can reject it by disabling the installation of cookies in your browser. After that, you will not be included in conversion tracking statistics.

The User can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the corresponding setting in his or her browser, but please note that in such a case the User may not be able to use all the functions on this website. The User can also prevent Google’s collection and use of data generated by the cookie and related to the User’s use of the website (including the User’s IP address) as well as the processing of this data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=hu

5. Right to restriction of processing

You shall have the right to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of the following conditions applies:
the accuracy of the personal data is contested by you, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of their use instead;
the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
you have objected to processing pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override your legitimate grounds.

6. Right to data portability

You shall have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided.

7. Right to object

You shall have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you, including profiling based on those provisions.

8. Objection in case of direct marketing

Where personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. Where you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data shall no longer be processed for such purposes.

The previous paragraph shall not apply if the decision:

  • is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between you and a data controller;

Security of processing

Taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, the controller and the processor shall implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, including inter alia as appropriate:

  • a) the pseudonymisation and encryption of personal data;
  • b) the ability to ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of processing systems and services;

Communication of a personal data breach to the data subject

When the personal data breach is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, the controller shall communicate the personal data breach to the data subject without undue delay.

The notice delivered to the data subject shall define the nature of the personal data breach in clear and plain language, and it shall communicate the name and contact details of the data protection officer or other contact point where more information can be obtained; it shall describe the likely consequences of the personal data breach; describe the measures taken or proposed to be taken by the controller to address the personal data breach, including, where appropriate, measures to mitigate its possible adverse effects.

The communication to the data subject shall not be required if any of the following conditions are met:

  • the controller has implemented appropriate technical and organisational protection measures, and those measures were applied to the personal data affected by the personal data breach, in particular those that render the personal data unintelligible to any person who is not authorised to access it, such as encryption;
  • the controller has taken subsequent measures which ensure that the high risk to the rights and freedoms of data subjects is no longer likely to materialise;
  • it would involve disproportionate effort. In such a case, there shall instead be a public communication or similar measure whereby the data subjects are informed in an equally effective manner.

If the controller has not already communicated the personal data breach to the data subject, the supervisory authority, having considered the likelihood of the personal data breach resulting in a high risk, may require it to do so.

Notification of a personal data breach to the authority

In the case of a personal data breach, the controller shall without undue delay and, where feasible, not later than 72 hours after having become aware of it, notify the personal data breach to the supervisory authority competent in accordance with Article 55, unless the personal data breach is unlikely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons. Where the notification to the supervisory authority is not made within 72 hours, it shall be accompanied by reasons for the delay.
